The skincare range is made from carefully selected botanical blends of the best that science and nature have to offer.

About Fleur & Bee
Fleur & Bee is a skincare company that specializes in natural, cruelty-free, and affordable beauty products. Their mission is to create effective and ethical skincare products that are accessible to everyone. Fleur & Bee's product line includes cleansers, serums, moisturizers, and eye creams that are made with ingredients like aloe vera, green tea, and vitamin C.

Fleur & Bee also partners with various organizations to donate a portion of their profits to causes like fighting animal testing and supporting women's health initiatives.
The products tested in this trial include:
Youth Fairy - a moisturizer that combines retinol with a host of other active ingredients to nourish, brighten, and support the skin
Eyes Eyes Baby - for puffiness, fine lines and dark circles
One Lip Wonder - designed to improve lip texture, nourish the lips and protect against dryness
This was a remotely conducted (virtual), consumer perception study. At baseline, subjects completed a study questionnaire covering skin quality, lip quality, and perception of skin appearance around the eyes, face, and neck.
A 12-week intervention period began, requiring participants to apply the Eyes Eyes Baby and One Lip Wonder products for 4 weeks and the Youth Fairy product for 12 weeks.
For Eyes Eyes Baby eye cream, participants were instructed to apply the product to clean skin, both in the morning and at night. For One Lip Wonder, participants were instructed to apply a thin layer to the lips daily.
The Youth Fairy product had slightly different application instructions. Participants were instructed to apply the moisturizer to their face and neck every other night until their skin adjusted. After the adjustment period, participants were asked to apply it to their skin every night. Participants were also instructed to avoid making contact with their eyes and to wear sun protection from SPF if using the product during the daytime.
Questionnaires covering all of the products were completed after the first use of all of the products on day one. Participants then answered questions specific to Eyes Eyes Baby and One Lip wonder at week two and week four. Participants answered questions specific to Youth Fairy at week six and week 12.
The study consisted of 31 women between the ages of 28 and 55 who experienced early-stage wrinkles that were not treated by topical, oral prescription drugs or medication, or over-the-counter products. Participants were also included in the trials if they experienced hyperpigmentation, dark spots, dark circles around eyes, crow's feet around eyes, or dry cracked lips. Women were excluded if they experienced strong bouts of hormonal acne, used skincare products that contain Vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide or AHAs, or were not able to consistently get seven or more hours of sleep.
Fleur & Bee products significantly improve self-reported scores of skin, lip and eye health
Consumers overwhelmingly responded that the skincare products improved perception of all 31 evaluated questions from face and neck, lip, and eye skin health
Results: Youth Fairy skin cream significantly improved subjects' self-reported scores of skin health including hyperpigmentation, blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face and neck region during the 12-week test period. Improvement of hyperpigmentation continued to significantly improve from week 6 to week 12. Likewise, all questions evaluating eye and lip health after 4 weeks of Eyes Eyes Baby and Wonder Lips products, respectively, showed significant improvement during the test period.
Subjects were evaluated at the end of the study period on how likely they would be to recommend the tested Fleur & Bee products to a friend. At week 12, 90% of subjects agreed that they would recommend this skincare supplement to friends. Similarly, 90% and 84% of subjects agreed that they would recommend Eyes Eyes Baby and One Lip Wonder respectively, at week four.
This study provides evidence of the effectiveness of Fleur & Bee's skincare products in significantly improving skin health
The purpose of this consumer perception study was to review perceptions of three different skincare products, targeting the skin around the eyes (Eyes Eyes Baby), the lips (One Lip Wonder), and facial skin (Youth Fairy). The primary goal of this study was to examine the efficacy of the three products to improve perceived eye/skin/lip health. This was accomplished through questionnaires evaluating subjects’ perceptions of their skin and lip characteristics.
At the end of the 4 week trial:
94% said their lips felt immediately protected against dryness after using One Lip Wonder
94% of participants said their eye area looks healthier after using Eyes Eyes Baby
At the end of the 12 week trial:
97% of participants said their skin feels more nourished after using Youth Fairy
94% said their skin feels instantly moisturized after using Youth Fairy
94% of participants noticed a visible improvement in the eye area after using Eyes Eyes Baby
90% would recommend Youth Fairy to a friend
All products significantly improved a range of self-reported scores for face and neck, lip and eye skin health, providing an indication that the tested products are effective at improving skin health.
